Being ‘Freelance’ is Not Equivalent to being ‘Jobless’

If you’re reading this, you probably have one of these two reactions.

  1. Yes, girl! Go preach this!



Yes, being a freelance writer, artist, stylist, photographer, etc. does not mean that you’re jobless. Sure, we don’t time in and out like everyone else and we occasionally work in our PJs but that doesn’t mean we’re jobless. It simply means that we have a different way of living/livelihood from everyone else.

Joining this whole movement a year ago, I have seen the results of ‘working from home’. Not only do get to sleep in (sometimes), freelancing can do wonders for for yourselfmentally, physically, and emotionally.

Your break-time is dictated by you, there’s no nosey and nega co-workers, and your pay is better than a fulltime job (on some days).

Project-based jobs are great not only because you get to work whenever you want and dodge the deadly Manila traffic, you get paid what you deserve. Anyone who’s worked in a company has gone over and beyond their Job Description and sometimes you don’t even get a thank you from your boss, let alone a promotion. With project-based work, you get to be paid per deliverable, not by how many hours you sit and ‘work’ on an office desk.

Aside from this, you can also work with multiple brands at the same time and still have enough time to do your laundry on a weekday (when the laundromat is empty), have enough energy to go out at night, and get a good night’s sleep.

I have so much to share with you on this topic! I’m spilling more tips, tricks, and no B.S. advice on freelancing on Raket Science 101! It’s on January 31, 7PM at Springboard201!
